Can't we all just get along!

So another election has come and gone. Democrats won pretty much everything, so I'm sure Armegeddon is right around the corner. I have become so weary of the "I'm right" attitude of both sides that it really makes me not even want to take part in the process. It seems that as a society we have lost the ability to disagree civilly. If you know me you know I love a good discussion and if I can get under your skin I will certainly do it but at the end of the dicussion I will laugh with you, hug on your neck and still try to be the best friend I can be. It just seems to me that in our effort to be proven right we forget that there are actual people with actual emotions and feelings that are getting run over. While it was certainly my desire that the outcome last night would be different the God whom I (and alot of democrats) serve obviously had a different plan and he has this, like he has all things, in control and "under his feet." As an American I think it's awesome that this process that has served us so well for over 200 years still works. I am in awe of the fact that 40 years after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated we are going to see an African-American president. And as my president he has my full support and respect. Whether I agree or disagree with his politics I will pray for God's will and guidance for him and for our country.

Just like you, I will pray for, serve and support my new President...but I gotta tell you, that I'm fearful of ANYone's ability to be allowed to voice a dissenting opinion over the next few years.
